People can find out how to access online health services as part of a new community project in Nailsea.

Healthwatch North Somerset is launching I-Tea to help people who struggle with technology to use online support services.

There are a number of health services available online which can help people to book a GP appointment, order repeat prescriptions and access their records.

Healthwatch North Somerset is working in partnership with Number 65 High Street to run drop-in IT sessions on Tuesday, June 18 and June 25 from 9.30am to noon.

Operations manager, Vicky Marriott, said: "Our patient feedback suggests patients don't always find it easy to get an appointment with their GP.

"As part of the I-Tea project, our team will offer help and understanding and a chance to meet other people over a drink at the same time."
